Really enjoyed our stay at Palmar Tent Lodge. At first I was a bit sceptic since camping is not my forte, but this is not the normal camping, the tents are quite big and they are right on the beach. What made the stay unforgettable though was not this, even though they tents are really nice, but the people who manage the place and the animals that live there! The people are so nice and friendly, they make you feel at home! It is as if they have known you for ages! During our first night we did not eat there we walked around 15 mins to a hostel nearby and eat over there, The second night though the food on the menu was pasta, and how can one say no to pasta when there is an Italian involved in its preparation! It was a good choice since it was delicious! Those who decide to take part in the evening meal will eat on one table and like that you can interact with all the people who are staying there, such a relaxing and enjoyable evening it was.
If you love animals that this is the place to be also. They love dogs and are taking good care of Scabies who was sick but is greatly improving thanks to their help. Then there is pippa who comes next to you with those huge and imploring eyes when there is food around and then will snob you any other time! The best one though was the parrot who loved going around on person's shoulders!
It was a pity that we only had two nights there.
